1997 Civic CX with HX engine and VX trans.

Sold

Selling my 1997 Honda Civic CX. After getting a VW TDI sportwagen for my wife, our family seems to be leaning to driving that 100% of the time over the civic due to much more space.

I am only the second owner and it has spent the majority of its life garaged. This car has 251k miles on it, but has been rebuilt from the ground up. Included with the car is the original window sticker, all factory keys as well as copies of the originals, Factory owners manual, and maintenance records. This is not a car where you have to wonder if items work. Everything works as it should and it does not need anything.

Highlights of the car are:
VX trans
HX engine (D16Y5 – vtec-e lean burn) /harness
New timing belt, water pump, gaskets, plugs, wires, egr, 02 sensors, cap, rotor, and many other parts
Bumper lip
4-2-1 header
K&N air intake filter (drop in factory replacement
Professionally tuned ECU (Neptune) with jumper harness.
Tunerview engine monitoring
MPGuino (monitors instant and average MPG)
Wink interior mirror side mirror deletes
HX wheels
LRR tires (Michelin Defenders) practically new
Antenna relocation to interior/windshield
Lowered on tien springs
Koni orange shocks
Kill switch
EX armrest
HX cluster with Tachometer
HD radio with Bluetooth, Aux input, and usb port
Sony explode speakers
New OEM Honda headlights
Ice cold AC

New parts include: recently refreshed lower mileage engine, timing belt, gaskets, water pump, thermostat, brakes, struts, shocks, springs, battery, trans, wheels, tires, wheel bearings, etc. Most of these items have been installed on the car for 25-30k miles.

I built this car to be a highway MPG car. Going a steady 80 mph, I still manage to get 43 mpg on the tank of gas. On summer fuel with a grill block I can cruise at highway speeds and average 55 – 63 mpg. I have had several tanks using mild hypermiling techniques while still traveling on the highway getting 73 mpg. The potential to get amazing gas mileage is there, just depends on your willingness to learn how to drive it efficiently.

Being performance oriented as well I wanted to make sure it handled perfectly. This really is a great setup on the car. Also, the vtec is tuned to kick in at 3k rpms and really is a noticeable change in HP.

I still have most of the stock items, so if you dislike a mod, most could easily be removed.

I am sure there are more great things about the car I am forgetting. Feel free to ask questions. 513 6o4 – 6o16

Sweet ride. Unique. Clean. Character. How did you accomplish the antenna location move? I just took the whole thing out of the roof and a-pillar and rested it on the dash. I move it about to adjust reception. Got a better solution?

I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

To each their own. I priced it to sell quickly. I am certain it will sell locally to someone. It has a lot of valuable parts on it. I just wanted to give it a chance on here first.

The antenna is a glass mount ribbon antenna. I removed the stock one completely. Not as good as a stock antenna at full mast, but decent. I still have the stock one if the new owner wants it, as well as, most of the other oem parts.

I have yellows on my MR2 and I like the ride of them a lot. But the oranges feel really good on this spring setup. I am pretty sure koni has a lot more custom applications for civics too. You are not just limited to a couple models.

interior is just as nice if not nicer than the exterior. Forgot to mention it has a hands free Bluetooth, hd radio with a flashdrive mp3 player on it.
